Youth Engagement in Grantmaking Request for Proposals

The Keith Campbell Foundation for the Environment is seeking a new partnership with a consultant, business, or nonprofit to coordinate and execute a pilot program for our Youth Engagement in Grantmaking Initiative. The aim of this new program is to educate and engage youth community members around the processes and benefits of youth-driven, community-based, and community-informed philanthropy. Our first pilot will be focused on the Delmarva Peninsula. The deliverable for this project is a cohort of five to seven youth between the ages of 16-24 that will successfully execute a grant program to strengthen their community.
